The Old Dance School’s expansive soundscapes of contemporary folk mark them as true innovators. Duelling fiddles, soaring brass crescendos, and irresistible grooves chart their remarkable journey from ballet school basement jam sessions and cowshed rehearsals to headline appearances at international festivals. The Old Dance School takes its name from the old Betty Fox School of Ballet in Birmingham, then legendary jam session venue, where the band first formed in 2006. Championed by BBC Radio 2’s Bob Harris, the septet’s provocative songs and cinematic sound has received plaudits throughout the country, and gave them an Album of the Year accolade in The Scotsman.
